Super Bowl LVII kicks off on Sunday, Feb. 12. As the Chiefs and the Eagles prepare to face off in the biggest game in football, we take a look back at some Super Bowl record-holders.
Most Rushing Yards in a Super Bowl
Timmy Smith has held the record for most rushing yards in a Super Bowl for 35 years. Back in 1988, Smith, a running back for Washington, added a whopping 204 yards on the ground in SB XXII. He added two touchdowns in the 42-10 win over the Denver Broncos, beating the previous record-holder. Marcus Allen had set the previous record just four years earlier in 1984 for the Raiders, with 191 yards. The player with the most rushing yards since 2000 is Michael Pittman, who had 124 rushing yards in 2003 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Most Rushing TDs in a Super Bowl
Terrell Davis set a record in 1998 that has yet to be matched, though many have come close. Davis had three rushing touchdowns for the Denver Broncos in their 31-24 Super Bowl win over the Green Bay Packers. Fourteen players are tied for second with two rushing TDs.
